New from Yakima WA

Just joined the forum and will in August be retiring. I'm in the process of setting up my new shop, with new equipment form Grizzly. I look forward to all of your hints and direction in my projects. I was a welder for 35 plus years and a shop foreman for twenty of that. I have the knowledge of layout but, know little in the field of wood working. I know in welding mistakes can be fixed, somewhat easly, woodworking mistakes cost. I have done small projects every now and then, I'm sure woodworking will be a challenge and a rewarding experience as well. This past summer I built my shop thatís 24ft by 30ft I did everything from the concrete to the roof and everything in-between. It was an experience Iíll never forget; rewarding to say the least. Iím going to start small and work my way up to bigger projects. I hope that this will give those who are interested in whatís said, in these forums an idea of where I am at.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Welcome from Texas B-Wood.

I have some Yakima racks on my truck (no idea what that has to do with anything really, just thought I would throw that out there).

Lots of great folks here and willing to help.


God made us from dust, but all we can do is make dust.
